Ducati Hypermotard launches at Milan

The Hypermotard 1100 takes on urban canyons and attacks mountain curves with total abandon. Its purpose is single-minded – to thrill.

Its ‘motard’ styling and stance combine with Ducati’s ‘sportsbike’ smooth and powerful L-Twin engine to deliver the best of both these two motorcycling worlds. With a riding position to dominate, the exceptionally slim, compact and incredibly light Hypermotard is ready to take on every road with big-bore acceleration.

High performance starts with attitude and the Hypermotard packs the most aggressive attitude of the entire Ducati range. Reduced to its essentials, it’s an extreme performance, over-the-top motorcycle that’s just looking for action.

This bike offers what no supermotard can: speeds exceeding 200kph (125mph) on the race track, fuel injection, and over 95hp – all combined with Ducati’s unmistakeable passion for engineering a motorcycle that stands apart.

Hypermotard 1100

Riding the Hypermotard is road domination. Wide, tapered section handlebars transfer control of the tarmac to the rider and a full length seat design enables easy fore and aft movement – slide up front when entering the turns and then slide back for maximum traction on exit.

A rigidly triangulated Trellis frame and track-tested chassis geometry is matched with state-of-the-art suspension. Start off with the road-holding abilities of huge 50mm Marzocchi forks, gripped by a triple screw lower fork crown, then add a fully adjustable Sachs shock mounted to a stout single-sided swingarm. Light Marchesini wheels combine with twin radially mounted Brembo four piston callipers, gripping new lightweight 305mm twin discs up front, and a 245mm disc at the rear to add control to the thrilling package.

The new 1100 Desmo engine pumps out potent torque and horsepower that is smooth and linear. The lightweight, powerful engine is the result of more than three decades of Desmo two-valve development. One ride with the 1100 explains how it has charmed journalists worldwide into claiming it to be the perfect motorcycle engine. In keeping with its aggressive image, the Hypermotard engine sports a racing-style dry clutch.

Hypermotard 1100 S

The 1100 S is the ultimate in extreme performance. The ‘S’ takes Hypermotard thrills to an even higher level using Marzocchi 50mm forks with trick, low friction, Titanium Nitride (TiN) coating on the sliders and a race-spec Öhlins fully adjustable shock at the rear for fantastic road holding. The Incredible stopping force of Brembo Monobloc calipers and lightweight machine finished forged-aluminium wheels complete the awesome chassis set-up, while carbon fibre fork protectors, timing belt covers and fenders front and rear show-off its ‘S’ status.
